In a spectacular double-feature perfect for an October evening, YA authors Adriana Mather and Kali Wallace will talk about their new books in an informal conversational format . Adriana Mather's new book, Haunting the Deep, her follow-up to the #1 New York Times bestseller How to Hang a Witch, is Titanic plus the delicious horror of Ransom Riggs and the sass of Mean Girls, in which a teen finds herself a passenger on the famous "ship of dreams." The Memory Trees, by Kali Wallace, the critically acclaimed author of Shallow Graves, is a darkly magical novel about a mysterious family legacy, the bonds of sisterhood, and the strange and powerful ways we are shaped by the places we call home. Register here for this free event!

The Grace of Kings
The Grace of Kings
by Ken Liu

A fantasy epic inspired by tales of the Han Dynasty, Ken Liu's sweeping saga elevates two heroes, Kuni and Mata, to overthrow an oppressive empire. In their quest to liberate the islands of Dara, the two men quickly become friends but just as quickly turn on each other as their conflicting visions of the future clash and shatter the unified rebellion. If you love battles, philosophy, and meddling gods, this series is for you.

Marge in Charge
Marge in Charge
by Isla Fisher

This book was such a fun read! I loved how crazy of a character Marge was. Perfect for teaching children to always look at any situation in a positive light and to never put boundaries on your imagination. Every page brought a new adventure for the reader! Ages 8-12
